How to be Born Again
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek
and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
(Mat 11:28-30 KJV)
Do you know Jesus as your personal savior? If not, this will be the most important decision that you will ever make in your lifetime. It is a matter of life or death. It determines where you will spend eternity. God loves you and wants to give you everlasting life. John 3:16 states: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, is the one and only way to God. In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, mo man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” We must be born again! To be born again is as simple as asking Jesus Christ to come into your heart and confessing Him to be your Lord and Savior. Jesus does all the rest.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Marvel not that I said unto thee, YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN.” - John 3:3-7.
